I am trying to test an hypothesis regarding mitochondrial genes that were introduced in the autosomes in humans, but I couldn't find any reliable source pinpointing those genes.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I am not sure if the hypothesis is that there are functional genes on the autosomes that were inserted from mitochondria or if these are just pseudogenes or insertions of mtDNA.  But maybe you will find these resources helpful...

New article about nuclear mitochondrial insertions (numts) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4227756/

There is one article with examples of these pseudogenes in humans  - http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1055790303001945

It is not specifically what you are looking for, but maybe it could give you some ideas: http://www.nature.com/hdy/journal/v112/n5/full/hdy2013125a.html
